Northampton Shelter Sunday
October 15, 2017
Shelter Sunday is a special day each year when community volunteers go door to door collecting donations to support local homeless shelters, emergency housing, and survival services. The funds raised on this one day help hundreds of homeless individuals and families obtain essential services. Last year, we raised nearly $50,000 in Northampton. Shelter Sunday is celebrating its 26th year! We hope to surpass our goal and raise $75,000! This year will include a pre-event mailing along with the community volunteers going door to door in many neighborhoods of Northampton, Florence and Leeds.
The Shelter Sunday Coalition consists of five local organizations (including CHD’s Single Room Occupancy) that serve the hungry and the homeless. Proceeds directly benefit the individuals and families that these organizations serve.
With your help, we will continue to meet the needs of our neighbors in need. Thank you for your support!
